Here are a couple of useful tips for UK players who are looking to play in the real money mode at any of our top-rated UK online casinos. One of the first things that I would suggest doing when you sign up to an online casino before you deposit, would be to set deposit limits. Some online casinos also allow you to set session time limits and spending limits.
You can set daily, weekly or monthly deposit limits, and once your limits have been reached, you will have to wait for the initial period to end before you could deposit again. You can easily change your limits once you have set them, but they would still take until the original period has ended for the new limits to come into effect. For example, if you set a £10 monthly deposit limit and deposit the full £10 on the first day of the month, you wouldn’t be able to deposit again until the first of the next month, and then you would also only be able to deposit £10.
Setting limits when you sign up to an online casino is a great way to stay in total control of how much you spend at the casino. If you don’t set limits, it can be easy to spend more than you can afford, which can be dangerous. Don’t forget that you also need to complete the VERIFICATION process to avoid any restrictions being put on your account. The verification process is designed to prevent things like fraudulent activity and underage gambling.
This usually takes around 48 hours to be completed, and it’s something that you cannot avoid. At UK online casinos today, you have to send the casino’s verification department proof of ID, a proof of address and a proof of your payment method (that you used when depositing at the casino). As soon as you have completed the verification process, any restrictions that were put on your account will be lifted, and you’ll be free to deposit and withdraw without any interruptions.
Just make sure that you have these documents and files ready to send to the casino as soon as they ask you for them. You can also speed the process up by sending them these documents before you are even asked for them. The best proof of ID would be a scanned colour copy of your VALID passport or driver’s license (or national ID card), and the best proof of address would be some kind of utility bill (gas or electric) or a bank statement. The bill or bank statement must be less than three months old, and it must clearly show your current address (the address that you supplied to the casino when signing up).
The proof of payment method could be a number of things. For example, if you deposit with an e-wallet such as Skrill or NETELLER, you would need to login to your e-wallet and then take a screenshot of your account when logged in. If you deposit with a credit or debit card, then you would need to take a photo of the back and front of the card, but blank out some of the numbers on the card (details of how to do this will be provided by the casino). Don’t forget that ALL UK online casinos require the same kind of documents to comply with UK gambling legislation.
